Spending too much time alone

Like most parents, sometimes I just want to be left alone. You know, just for a few minutes. Long enough to read a few emails, or take a bath or write a blog post. But, I think most parents wish to be left alone because we all know that it is a short-term situation. Eventually, we will be surrounded by loud noises and chaos and faces with peanut butter on them.…

Will my real friends please stand up?

When we are children, life is simple: We divide our lives into things we like and things we don't like. Candy is wonderful; vegetables are not. Summer fun is the best thing ever; school is a chore that is dealt with. People we know are either friends or not friends.



It turns out that last one is still true…

Who do you think is lonely?

Pause for a moment to take stock of your family and friends. Do you think that anyone you know is lonely? Did you know that you are probably right?

Who are they talking to?

By now, I think I have mentioned that my son is a talker enough times that I will have to apologize to him when he turns into a teenager for labeling him that way. (I'm not wrong, by the way,…

Hanging out with the other butterflies

Recently, my coworkers and I watched a TED Talk by Susan Cain around the power of introverts. After the talk, we all took a quiz to determine where we fell on the introvert - extrovert spectrum. It was fun to see who was a full-blown introvert and who was more of an extrovert.…

Putting your trust in your nose

Just like my mother, I have a sensitive nose (thanks, Mom!) I can smell all the smells - the good, the bad and the ugly. Because of this, I tend to avoid people who wear too-strong perfume or aftershave, and my very sweet husband seeks out my opinion before changing personal hygiene products to ensure they won't bother me (thanks, Love!).…

Life Lesson #5- Girlfriends

One of the things that I’ve learned since becoming a parent, is just how easy it is to lose touch with your friends. And that’s a mistake. The happiest people I know are the ones who maintained their friendships, and made them a priority in their lives. Girlfriends supply a much needed support system, and make drinking vast amounts of wine socially acceptable ;)…

The secret to happiness (for men)

My son likes to tell me when he is not happy. If I take him to a store, I hear "But that doesn't make me happy." If I tell him to clean up his toys, I hear, "That makes me so sad." He is five: Happiness is getting to do whatever he wants when he wants.



I used to think that happiness depended on the person -…

When friendships change

I do not know where my childhood best friend is. Her name is Nicole, and she and I were best friends from first through fifth grade. We were Girl Scouts together, we would play games in her basement, and we had countless sleepovers at each other's houses. When I moved to South Carolina, we wrote each other letters, but eventually that tapered off and we lost touch.…

In case of emergency

When I was in my mid-20s, I learned that a friend of mine had listed me as her emergency contact. Thankfully, I didn't learn this information during an actual emergency. Rather, after hanging out one night she admitted that it was hard being far away from family, and even though she lived with her boyfriend, she had me listed as her emergency contact on all her forms.…

Give Thanks : Catch the Thankfulitis

How 'bout that snow, eh , guys?!!



It's that time of year again to eat till your pants cause a serious pain in your lower abdomen and when naps are a must. A time where people come together and bring odd dishes like jello molds and cheap wine. Tomorrow, my pals, is Thanksgiving!



I could eat a Thanksgiving meal 365 days a year without question. It's my favorite, especially the way my Mom makes it because no one ever makes it like dear ole' Ma. I just love getting together… Continue

Conversation with my son

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…
